Lake Okeechobee heavy cover bass fishing at it’s finest. They call them the hay fields and this is how fishing for bass in the historic Everglades gets done. Targeting large expanses of vegetation with baits like swim jigs and the Gambler 7″ Fat Ace, we break done fishing tips and techniques for catching largemouth bass moving in to spawn on Florida’s crown jewel – Lake OKeechobee.
This vid was shot just before the Gambler Lures Free Tournament out of Roland Martin Marina.
Weather was fairly stable with highs in the upper 70’s and lows in the upper 60’s. Partly cloudy skies and a slight northeastern breeze. Low light was key as well as fish were more active and willing to chase baits casted at holes, pockets, and lily pad junctures.
